This week work has started on a zebra crossing to improve the safety of Priory Road in Muswell Hill following a successful campaign by local Liberal Democrats which started over seven years ago.
Cllr Gail Engert and Lynne Featherstone MP, whilst a councillor, started a campaign in 2004 following a series of accidents on Priory Road. Now a pedestrian crossing will be installed on Priory Road and there will be associated works including raised entry tables at the junctions of Park Avenue North and Park Avenue South to improve safety for pedestrians.
Cllr Gail Engert (Muswell Hill) comments:
“I’m glad that local residents will soon have the much-needed zebra crossing to improve safety on this busy road. It is a testament to local residents persistence that we have continued with our campaign for so long.”
Lynne Featherstone MP adds:
“Such a relief that seven years of campaigning for road safety has finally paid off, it’s fantastic to deliver this great solution for local people.”
